…the personal web site of Thomas James (Jimmy) Allen.
My interests range beyond the internet, and in fifty-some years I’ve been lots of things, including Philosophy professor at UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Kinko’s manager, poet, chess player, science student, photographer and beachcomber. I’ve earned my bachelors (UVa ’83) and masters (UCSB ’89) degrees in Philosophy, been an antiques and junk dealer, eBayer, slot car collector, woodworker, paperboy, and plenty more things that you won’t see on my resume.
